Fleeced of Ills Money.
Jackson "Woblsey, a mover, was

representing himself to be looking for
a stolen wagon accosted Woblsey just
as he was about to drive his team on
the ferry boat and told him he had the
stolen wagon. He arrested Woblsey
and took him to Cairo. On the way
he searched Woblsey and took from
him thirty-seven dollars, all themoney
he had. When they arrived in Cairo
the man gave his prisoner the slip and
disappeared taking the money with
Woblsey ifotified the police but the
man had made his escape, so the. poor
fellow had to walk back to East Cape
to his family without a cent in his

medium sized man with light mustache,
light heavy hair, dressed in a black
suit of clothes and wore an open faced
Returned to His old Home.
Ben Gockle. who moved from Jack
son to Paducah. Ky.. a few months
ago. has returned to the Cape and he
intends to make this city his home.
Mr. Gockel started a livery stable at
Paducah and it was so much better
than any other stable they had ever
had there that he was monopolizing
the business. Another man in the
same business saw this and he went to
Mr. Gockel and told him to set his
price and he would buy his stable.
The price was made, the man accepted
it. paid the money and Mr. Gockel
concluded he would move back to his
old home. He will locate in this city
and go into business here.
To Ite Made a Test Case.
The case of Charley Blattner against
the city of Cape Girardeau was tried
by a jury in Justice Kimmel's court
Tuesday and the jury returned a ver
dict against the city. This case comes
from the city being too strict in its en
forcement of the stock law. Charley
Blattner is a fanner. He resides about
two and a half miles from the city.
He keeps his stock on pastures, not
because there is any law compelling
him to do so. but because he has the
pastures and he believes in that way
of raising stock. Some of his cattle
broke out of a pasture and came to
town and by so doing insulted the
dignity of the city. The city official
whose duty it is to look after and im
pound stock caught tho cattle and im
pounded them in accordant with tho
stock ordinance. Mr. Blattner went
to the stock pound and made a demand
for his cattle. The keeper of tho pound
refused to give them up until his fees
for impoundingwere paid. Mr. Blatt
ner refused to pay the fee. and he then
went before Justice Kimmel and got
out a writ of replevinand the constable
took possession of the eattle and re
turned them to their owner.
Mr. Blattner says he never intended
to violate our city stock law. He did
not know his cattle were out of his
pasture til! ha happened in town and
was told that they were in tho city
stock pound. He thinks that it is
wrong for him to have to pay for vio
lating a law when he never knowingly
violated the law apd he is perfectly
willing to have this case made a test
case in the higher courts.
